Mangshan National Forest Park is located on the east side of Ming Tombs Reservoir in Changping District, with the highest peak at a height of 659 meters. The mountain is named Mang (meaning python in Chinese) because it undulates like a huge python. 96 percent of the park area is covered with forests, with high rising peaks and green and luxuriant plants everywhere. Walking in the forest, breathing clean air and listening to the sound of mountain breeze are refreshing experiences. Winter jasmine, mountain peach, wild apricot, forsythia, clove, flowering plum, Chinese herbaceous peony, Chinese rose, and cherry blossom blooming in succession turns the park into a vast sea of spring. The fiery red foliage, such as smoke tree, mono maple, typhina, and Japanese creeper, tells visitors everything about autumn’s splendor.
In addition to the vast natural landscape, there are several cultural attractions such as the Grand Buddha, Mangshan Pagoda, and the Highland Corridor. The park is an ideal venue for holding climbing activities and competitions. In summer, visitors can enjoy the shade and cool breezes, and in autumn they can view the maple leaves on the eastern side of the mountain and immerse themselves in the most spectacular color of the season. Mangshan, where frost-covered leaves are redder than the flowers of spring in other places, is not the Fragrant Hill but much better than the Fragrant Hill.
